Reading Challenges: Popsugar - Set in a single day
On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today.
Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure—to live a lifetime in a single day.
This one was quite the disappointment for me. I had heard great things, but many of the characters really fell flat. The insta-love was problematic. And the story dragged in many places. I just didn’t connect with the emotional weight of the story or really any of the characters. I’m sure many other people would love this book. I am not one of them.
